They were open on Christmas Day and the staff were very good, attentive and listened to what we wanted. We stayed at The Beacon for 6 nights and this Cafe was our regular breakfast spot. They do need to learn to relate to the customers the staff are a little jaded, it I spoke Italian it would have been interesting I am sure. The patriarch made the best lattes but when he was not working it was hit and miss. Food was fresh, well cooked and plenty of it. If you are staying at the beacon pay it a visit and make your own mind up, I enjoyed it my husband on,yngave it a three star rating. Giggling.
